90 degrees. but starting this week, the average high is 89 and it's one degree, right, but it's one degree that's eventually going to go down to 88 and 87 as we head throughout this month. this is the month where we, on average start to cool out. now, i don't call these numbers this week, i don't call that cool, but the bigger picture, just remember that, where it's supposed to be starting to cool down. it will eventually dry out as well. we have a tonight. not severe. no thunder and lightning, but some wet weather moving through orange county, heading from south to north. . but the big picture, you can see we're dry here in central north carolina. interesting though, remember the last several days, last week or so, we've had rain coming from all different directions. these showers moving to the
the east. that type of chaos is going to continue over the next couple of days. here is your tuesday forecast. we get out the door tomorrow morning around 73 degrees. so that warm weather not going to go anywhere. 79 by 9:00 a.m. 84 at noon. mostly cloudy later in the day. the morning will stay generally dry but the afternoon will start to pop up a few showers and thunderstorms with temperatures again in the upper 80s. as far as that humidity goes, today it range. that is not going to change at all through tuesday, wednesday, and probably through thursday and friday as well. the reason why the showers are going to come from different directions is because we have' got this stationary boundary that is going to lay draped across the carolinas the next couple of days. an area of low pressure i gulf of mexico is going to help spark them off along with some
by tomorrow it might move to the north just a little bit, but we are still getting that moisture feed coming from the gulf of mexico. by wednesday, same thing, sure that boundary might dissipate but we still have that moisture feed bringing in humidity. yes, there is high pressure offshore but it is too far away to help really clear us out or cool us down or do anything significant like that. even as we get into thursday, temperatures will start to warm up into the low 90s from the upper 80s and we still have thunderstorm. so, tomorrow, one of the cooler days we have with temperatures expected in the upper 80s with that 30 percent of chance of showers under partly to mostly cloudy skies. remember don't look at that 30 and think that's a small number. if it does get on top of you those storms could be very paur fl. that's heavy rain and thunder and lightning.
rain chances stay small. temperatures stay around 90 on friday. we get into the weekend with highs in the low 90s. 89 degrees as we get into next monday. those overnight lows they stay in the mid 70s which tells us there is still plenty of humidity to be had for the next week. did we have some storms over the weekend. look at these pictures from wake county. lightning making a five-foot hole in the this lightning, very dangerous could cause problem. the fire department had to come. that's what kind of lightning the energy has. the reason we have these pictures is because this was my house. we were home at the time, but luckily no one was hurt. a lot of lessons that i'm reminded of of this, again, severe storms, whether it's

. before we talk sports, i have a question for you. think back about five hours ago when it was raining as hard as i've seen in a long time. my question is, where were you. hopefully you just said you were somewhere cool and dry. well, not the duke football team. they were on the practice field camp. my guess is they put all their attention towards erasing the up down and down season of years ago. the high point of the season came in their very last game. that's when they won their first bowl came in over 50 years. if you ask them, that one bowl victory, well, it ain't enough.
